I have been given very short notice about the World Wide Trophy in Georgia which is to take place between 10th and 14th May 2017. We won it spectacularly in 2016 against the might of world backgammon so I would love to put out two strong teams again this year. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible if you would like to be considered for selection.
The European Championships will take place in Reykjavik, Iceland between 5th and 8th October and this year to reflect the growing importance of the UKBGF ratings two places will be allocated based on average ratings at the end of March, April, May and June this year, subject to sufficient experience points having been attained. The remaining places will be selected by the panel of Peter Bennet, Lawrence Powell and myself.
